Six Ways the Animal Hero Kids MacnCheeze Challenge Can Save the Earth! Why Vegan Fare equals Eco-Fare
Animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all of the world’s transportation systems combined. The United Nations urges a shift to a vegan diet to combat climate change.
It takes 2,400 gallons of water to produce one pound of meat. It takes 683 gallons of water to produce just one gallon of milk.
It takes almost 20 times less land for someone to be on a vegan diet than it does to feed a meat-eater. The crops are eaten directly by a vegan rather than the grain being fed to animals.
Ten pounds of grain is used to produce one pound of meat. Seventy percent of grain grown in the United States is fed to animals in feedlots.
The Environment Protection Agency estimated animal agriculture is responsible for 50-85 percent of all man made ammonia vapors in the United States.
Deforestation, drought, climate change and pollution. Cattle are grazing on 270 million acres of our public land in 11 western states (and counting). These factors all contribute to decreased wildlife populations. Over 175 threatened or endangered species are imperiled by livestock on federal lands. At the request of ranchers ‘’Wildlife Services “ kill keystone species like wolves, beavers, foxes and bears.
What is the Happy News Here?
The happy news is 3 or 4 times every single day you can choose to take the most powerful step possible to help the earth, in any month of the year. Hey, why not start by eating vegan MacnCheeze?
